I'm just a coal miner
I got no business here
Drinking fine brandy
Sippin' ??? through my beard
Congratulations
You're victims of the year
And all the ??? will help you reappear

I'm just a coal miner
Ain't got no business here
...
Give me someplace to live
Congratulations
You're victims of the year

I'm just a coal miner
???
Give me some ???
Congratulations
You're victim of the year

I'm just a coal miner
Drinking fine brandy
Sippin' drinks through my beard
Congratulations
You're victims of the year
